image Department of Pesticide Regulation rejects Federal Court Order to ban chlorpyrifos 480_pesticide-0282_1.jpg by Sarait Martinez
Rejecting the order of the 9th Circuit Federal Appeals Court to end the use of a brain-harming pesticide, state regulators November 15th announced a set of interim recommended measures aimed at limiting exposure to the organophosphate pesticide chlorpyrifos, known to cause permanent brain damage in young children.

Among those brave enough to combat fires by taking on such dangerous duties as creating containment lines in hot zones are thousands of people enslaved by the prison industrial complex. For instance, two hundred are involved with fighting the ongoing Camp Fire. The California Department of Corrections seems proud that this past summer 58 of them were kids....

Stockton based Assemblymember Henry Crabb, a proslavery Whig from Tennessee, asserted that the federal territories were the common property of all American citizens.

The Alameda County Sheriff's Office applied for and received a grant targeting incarcerated Black Muslims in Alameda County. The Homeland Security CVE, or Countering Violent Extremism program, has been criticized for solely targeting Muslims as susceptible to violence and extremism, while not addressing the rising threat of white supremacists. "Operation E Pluribus Unum" has been criticized for its focus on incarcerated Muslims. Law enforcement said the program was necessary to support reentr...

The lockdown of 47,000 prisoners in all 25 Pennsylvania prisons began Aug. 29, 2018, and lasted for 12 days. Department of Corrections (DOC) Secretary John Wetzel backed by Gov.
